Numerical Relativity

Libraries at any institution with an active research program in astrophysics or general relativity should have a copy. Structure and Evolution of Single Stars. The math appears to be correct, the reasoning justified. In addition to numerical relativity, Shapiro has worked on the physics and astrophysics of black holes and neutron stars, relativistic hydrodynamics, magnetohydrodynamics and stellar dynamics, and the generation of gravitational waves. The numerical analysis is equally as delightful.

The Mathematics of Black-Hole Mechanics. Assuming only a basic knowledge of classical general relativity, the book develops the mathematical formalism from first principles, and then highlights some of the pioneering simulations involving black holes and neutron stars, gravitational collapse and gravitational waves.
